Abstract

A broad spectrum of developmental abnormalities of the genitourinary tract is known to occur within the pediatric population (Table 3.1). Given the complexdevelopmental process of the genitourinary system, it is not surprising that abnormalities of the genitourinary tract are among the most common congenital anomalies. Collectively, congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) occur in approximately 1 in 500 live births [ 1 ]. CAKUT represent a diverse group of anomalies with varying clinical implications; however, taken together, CAKUT are of great clinical signifi cance as they encompass the most common causes of renal failure in children [ 1 ].
